Stay-on-Track Literacy Volunteer Tutors

Seeking Volunteers!

Volunteers are needed to help young, struggling readers. We need 25 helpers for our youth students. You arrange individual days and times directly with parents of a student and fit it around your schedule including vacations and days you are available. It’s suggested to meet twice a week 30-40 minutes each time for the nine weeks June 5th to August 4th. To be a volunteer you will need to fill out an application and turn it in at the Brigham City Library's front desk, and then walk over to the police station in the City building to get a free background check. (A driver’s license is needed for ID.)

If you would like to pair up with a friend or neighbor, this makes it so the students are still tutored when you are on vacation or you can each take a day a week.


The Literacy Program's mission is to provide basic literacy instruction for all ages which is free, effective and confidential and builds a foundation to enhance the individual's quality of life. The Literacy Program is the resource for mobilizing volunteers to meet the literacy needs of low level readers throughout Box Elder County. We offer ESL for those learning English as a second language.

The community literacy needs affect all of us. By supporting English Language Learners and struggling youth readers we build a stronger community and raise individuals and families from poverty.

 

Family Reading Team Time

Schedule your Family Reading Team Time.

Reading is all about family involvement—motivate your children to practice reading just as you have them practice sports.

 

Volunteers are always needed to help adults, English language learners, and children.

Contact Linda Ashcraft at literacy@brighamcity.utah.gov to find out more about volunteer opportunites in literacy and ESL.

 

 

 

 

Literacy Book Drive

I recently knew someone on a crusade to help individuals in poverty. They were busy collecting, blankets, clothing and toiletries to donate. A worker at St Ann’s in Ogden told her if you really want to help these people—then volunteer to teach them to read. Then they can get themselves out of poverty.
